I have tried to catch and feed the lintian and linda errors back to
Kartik all the time. I really don't know how I missed it. If I
remember right, I did an upload of this package only once.
As a matter of fact, I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of requests
for package uploads from Kartik, so it may have so happened that I did
it by in haste and missed this error. I apologize for the error.
For the last few sponsored uploads of Kartik, I have only uploaded
festival and associated packages, not linhdd.
